OUR CYBER FRIENDS
Our Online Friends
These are thoughts I have been having
For some time now...
And I would like to share them with you
Before life in this world gets too crazy,
And tomorrow never comes.
I have come to realize many things
Since I connected to the Internet,
In that we get to meet people
We never would have met
In any other way.
We get to know these people,
Not by their looks or by their touch,
But by their heart and soul.
If we had met any of these people on the street,
We may not have given them a second glance.
Or, maybe we would have looked at them and said,
"Hey, look how fat that person is,"
or . . . "Hey look, there's a gay guy"
or even. . . . "Hey look, there's a person of color."
We could have done this
And never have known
This real person on the inside.
This is a very sad thing.
I have come to meet many people on the internet
Who have truly touched my heart in many ways.
They have made me a much better person.
Wouldn't it be something
If the whole world could be touched like this?
To get to know each other in ways
They would never have thought possible?
I believe if they did,
There would be no war,
No homeless or hungry people.
This also applies
to the people we already know.
Don't make assumptions.
Don't be judgmental.
And don't let pride get in the way of love.
We should stop to think
How it would be tomorrow
If we lost that person,
And we didn't have the chance
To say we were sorry.
So, the next time you pass someone....anyone....
Think about this.
This person could be one of your Internet
One of those people you would love to meet.
One of those people who have a knack
For making your day,
Or for bringing some warmth and friendship
Into your life.
One of those who've helped you along the way,
And you'd like to repay the favor
In some small way.
Just turn to that person and give them a smile..
A warm hello.
And soon this will catch on,
And soon we all will be smiling.
Because if we don't,
Then the same chance tomorrow
May never come.
